ItDontMeanAThing,

I like your interpretation. There was a movement in Latin America, liberation theology (Oscar Romero and others: jesuit priests), a socialist approach to the gospel (which of course is the only possible interpretation)

The liberation theologians would have much more than 1/3 earth and much less church and sky. Many of them got killed by - you can guess who did it - they posed a threat to the Empire

I could elaborate on this but it's not the right forum
